With your permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to take question 8 and 12 together.
This Government is committed to protecting the world’s rainforests. During my recent visit to Brazil, I raised the UK’s commitment to environmental protection and offered support to Brazil in the transition to renewable energy and a lower carbon economy.
We are working in partnership with Brazil and through UK Government-led programmes, investing over £150 million of climate finance in forest programmes across the country.
I was delighted that on my return from Brazil in August, the PM announced an extra £10 million in the aftermath of recent fires.
